Newcastle’s O2 Academy is set to host one very eclectic bill, as three very different music makers are brought together on the same line-up on Friday 8th April. Mouses, Figmennt and Claire-Jayne are the trio of talents set to play, and all bring something very different to the table.

Billigham duo Mouses’ frenetic, raw energy is contagious, and is a cornerstone of the dynamic live performances they’ve become known for. Their lo-fi garage rock is littered with playful melodies with fuzzy punk rock the crux of their quirky sound. They’re joined by a complete, but very welcome change of pace in the form of the ambient, dreamy, seductive post-rock of Figmennt, a band with a completely different approach, but equally mesmerising. For the third gear shift, singer and rapper Claire-Jayne’s poppier sensibilities will be on show, and should go down a storm with the artist recently honing her craft in North East venues like The Sage and The Tyne Theatre and Opera House. O2 Academy will rarely play host to such a talented mix of artists.

Mouses, Figmennt and Claire-Jayne play O2 Academy, Newcastle on Friday 8th April.
